Your input will be valued, whatever your coding expertise.

Great to see some Joomla expertise. I have been hesitant to suggest it
because I have not done enough yet with it. Its actually a truly open
form of Mambo, similar to LedgerSMB being a more truly open fork of SL.
I encourage anyone to look seriously at Joomla for an open web-based CMS
that our doco should use. it seems to me that it is a better approach
than any wiki I have used - all 4 of them :-).
